Hired to Depress: A Digital Scholarly Edition of William Blake's Annotations to Sir Joshua Reynolds' Discourses

John Hamilton Mortimer

John Hamilton Mortimer (1740–1779) was a painter, etcher, and draftsman and president of the Society of Artists of Great Britain in 1774.

Although a student of Reynolds, Mortimer painted in a picturesque, flamboyant, and romantic style. Banditti was the preferential subject for Salvator Rosa, inspiring works like Banditti Going out in the Morning (1773). Mortimer was also fascinated with subjects and themes from Anglo-Saxon history rather than Classical Greece and Rome.
